Paul Emery (Shazam)

Paul Emery

I spent a delightful lunchtime at the Guildhall yesterday with Paul Emery who back in the 1970s was drumming with Shazam and also with a band called Freefall (of which more later). He’d just flown in from snowbound Boston USA, having moved stateside about 35 years ago. These days he plays bass guitar in a band.

He was here to visit his mum who’s been poorly and he’s off again on Thursday but it was good to meet up. The photo is with the Oasis/Parlour poster as that’s one of the places he recalled playing back then. There’s also footage of Paul and Shazam playing in Pompey at this address
